@GinnyMcQueen ja, stimmt
@ej I can if I'm looking at the grotty little polo shirt bollocks
@GinnyMcQueen What if you do that *without* a Spotify playlist. Like, just randomly. In the street.
Asking for a friend.
@sixohsix I FEEL YOUR PAIN
I guess this is something I can't fathom, because my country is essentially the Scandinavia of the south.
@GinnyMcQueen damn. so I'm basically going to go and find some himalayan pink salt and organic fair trade pepper for this artisanal fucking foot i've stuck in my mouth, ok?
@GinnyMcQueen i'm sorry. I think fresh stuff must be cheaper/more accessible in AU, which means I tend to default that way.
Not that we're all 'woo food justice' or anything here, of course.
@GinnyMcQueen chopped fresh tomato, basil and garlic, stir through your favourite pasta. Fresh, sweet, simple. Cooking is hard, but giving yourself simple good things is easier!*
*May have cooked my way out of depression. YMMV.
@danielle which makes sense to me! The markers of gender aren't just on the surface, they're indelibly bound up with our sense of self and understanding of who and how we are. It's right and it's good that we should have autonomy and control of such fundamental things as the individuals we know/feel/believe we are. (If you'll forgive the internet-gender-theorist waffling...)
@danielle for me it's just part of the general mess and chaos of the body. I enjoy the ritual of shaving, and all of the oils and soaps and creams and splashes and scents. My beard annoys me if I let it grow more than a few days, though, so I'm not Stockholm-y with it, I guess. I don't feel any particular horror.
After all, there's fingernails, head hair, pubes... All of them grow in the same kind of way.
I don't discount that someone else may feel radically different, tho...
People who haven't seen me in a while saying "Oh, you look *different*", "You've cleaned up!", or my least best favourite "Oh! You used to be... uh... blonde."
Well, I used to like you, only something ate your brain and you're actually a fuckwit, so I'm pissing in your beer.
